BROUGHT TO YOU BY ALC Volume 4/Issue 2

Who we are

Lee V. Pollard's academic Learning Center (ALC) is a credit recovery program enabling students to finish a course in 10 school days (or less) without waiting for teacher assignments. Students and teachers work closely on a highly individualized graduation plan setting goals and working through many academic and personal challenges. ALC is a QUIET, independent, study hall environment with teacher assistance as needed. Thirty seat time hours per course is a vital component of ALC. All absences and tardies must be made up in conjunction with completing course requirements.

“Unity is strength…where there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” ~Mattie Stepanek

A Recent Success

Ms. Arenas:

 Many of my students kept
 up with their deadlines. They never hit “a wall” and motivated each other constantly! They were so   inspiring!

Mr. Wright:

 Iris M. worked very hard until the end.  Her drive is very impressive!

Ms. Saunders:

 We had our first “cub” who was a delight to have in class! It was amazing to see how our lions took her in, mentored her, and helped   to continually motivate her.

IN their words…
